FUNCTION

Your dome light, or single light located in the center of the ceiling, uses an incandescent bulb from the factory, giving it a yellowish color. By replacing with an LED, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a cool white color, just like the lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMF6 or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your dome light.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!

 

BULB DESIGN

SMF2: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with two 5050-size Epistar SMDs and a protective cover for added durability and style. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF6: Standard festoon base, with six 5050-size Epistar SMD chips arranged on a rectangular panel. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with spring-loaded festoon-style adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. The board-and-adapter design allows for extremely high brightness compared to a simple bulb.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.


COLOR

These LEDs are available in many crisp, bright colors. White and warm white are the most popular colors, for a modern look with maximum visible light.

You can also select blue, red, green, or amber to add a unique look to your interior. Please note- when ordering these unique colors, we recommend moving to the next-brighter stage for acceptable light output.

BRIGHTNESS

Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb: 

SMF2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF6: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
SMD12 Board: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.

 

QUALITY

LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  5. Definitely worth every penny Review by Trae

    Quality
    Price

    In the new 2015+ WRX, the stock map lights leave a lot to be desired. It appears that instead of going with the previous year's design, they tried to make the map lights only have a small opening for the light to escape. While this does help with glare from the map lights, as well as create a tighter beam area, it seems to also have the effect of making the lights ... well, useless. These LEDs are the answer. In combination with the newer map light housing on the 2015+ WRX, they create an awesomely bright cool white with a very tight beam area. Absolutely would buy again. (Posted on 7/31/16)

    These are extremely bright. The fitment is interesting due to it being a board, but still easy to install. Overall it was a night and day difference, totally worth it. (Posted on 7/31/16)

    I bought this replacement dome light a few weeks back and I have to say the SMD12 board puts out some crazy light compared to the stock. Even in the daytime this thing is super bright and at night the thing lights up the entire back and even some of the front of the car. Installation was a breeze. Definitely wouldn't hesitate to buy this light for your car if I was you. (Posted on 7/2/16)

    Let me start off by saying thsnk you to DD! Always top notch products and service. I ordered the the SMD 12 board for my 15' WRX and it was perfect fitment and came with everything needed for simple install. After installing, I noticed there was room in the dome for another board. So naturally I jump on the site and order another. Even though knowingly I had to modify and connect the two boards together I did so for even greater output. The final product is astounding!!! There isn't anything I can't find at night. The output is crazy bright! Absolutely best dome light on the market! THANK YOU Diode Dynamics!! (Posted on 4/17/16)

    I bought and installed the SMF6 diode in 6000K for my WRX trunk and it's amazing upgrade. The installation was incredibly simple and I was admiring the increase in light quality and quantity in less than 5 minutes. The bright white from this diode is much better than the dull yellow of the stock bulb and illuminates a lot more of the cabin. I highly recommend combining this diodewith the same SMF6 diode for the map lights. I've also submitted pictures of 3 SMF6 diodes installed (dome + 2 map lights) Greatly recommended purchase!
